Songs and Praise

 
Praise Jerusalem Stations of the Cross Israeli Folk Songs
 
Imagine coming to the Holy Land and singing your favorite hymns and spirituals at the sites commemorating Jesus’ ministry, passion, crucifixion and resurrection.  Would you like to solo on the stage of the 2,000-year-old Roman Theater at Caesarea?  Or experience singing “Amazing Grace” in the Upper Room” or “Hallelujah” at Jerusalem’s St. Anne Church, with its astounding 11-second echo?

  • “Down By the Riverside” after a renewal of baptism vows in the River Jordan
  • “Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho” en route to the oldest city in the world
  • “Rise and Shine” after a rainy day
  • “Dem Bones Dem Bones Dem Dry Bones” after visiting Masada where fragments of Ezekiel chapter 37 were found
  • “When the Spirit of the Lord is in my Heart” after visiting the Valley of Elah where David killed Goliath
  • “Swing Low Sweet Chariot” opposite Jericho, where Elijah ascended to heaven in a chariot of fire
  • On the Jericho Road there's room for just two
  • “Man from Galilee” as we sail the Sea of Galilee
